Re: Rumor: Olympus E-PEN 1S

I heard from my rep who is close friends with an engineer at Olympus that the forthcoming OM-D 1S is a 35mm diagonal square format sensor which means there is no need for a portrait grip on this camera! It will also fit all the Zuiko 4/3rds lenses with optional 0.4x speed booster adapter that incorporates fast PDAF and gives a 2 stop speed increase to all lenses. So the 35-100mm f2 will become a 14-40mm f1.4 with adapter! When used without the adapter the lens will act like the standard 35-100mm f2 in 4/3rds crop mode.

It's an exciting day for Olympus shooters indeed.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
